Review: Beautiful intimate restaurant - booking highly recommended! Waiters were courteous and attentive and we felt as though we could take our time over the meal. This is proper gourmet-style vegan food at very reasonable prices. It's far better than a certain other Berlin gourmet restaurant - nowhere near as pretentious and you don't need to ring a bell to get in! Foodwise, well, I think I can only echo what most other people say. Divine, subtle flavours that seduce your palate. There were so many pleasant suprises, from the beautifully caramelised roasted yellow courgette in the salad accompanying the starter to the richness of the espresso sorbet which set off the raspberry tart perfectly. This isn't cooking, it's an art! I insisted my boyfriend took pictures of all the food as it was so beautifully presented - it was almost a shame to eat but I'm so glad I did! We ate: potato and cucumber soup; spring roll (not your usual bog standard affair but fresh and packed with flavour); tandoori seitan (I'm not usually a fan of fake meats but this really worked and the combination of flavours was amazing); raspberry tart with espresso sorbet and fruits. We drank: (a lot of) locally brewed beer; soya milk cappucinos; brandy and whisky digestifs. The whole bill came to 57 Euros but at least 20 of that was drinks (well, it WAS Friday night after all...) Please visit this place if you are going to Berlin. It's well worth travelling (we were staying 8km away so got a taxi but were so glad we did) if you are elsewhere in the city. I can't wait to go back.
